MEMORIES OF MAMA
When Patricia told her sisters she was writing a cookbook in memory of their mother, they all responded, “It won’t have a lot of recipes, will it?”
Their mother, Juanita Woods-Herren, simply wasn’t a great cook. It just wasn’t her favorite thing. So, she’d crank up the flames to hurry the process along, dressing her eggs in frilly lace and burning rings around all her pancakes. Fortunately, Juanita never allowed children in the kitchen as she prepared meals, so her daughters didn’t pick up too many bad habits.
Out of necessity, Patricia learned to cook well on her own. Determined to make good tasting, interesting meals for her family, she took the best her mother offered and made it better, such as Pork Cake (which has become a family tradition). As a world traveler, she also collected ideas from around the world and incorporated them in her study of the art. She has now compiled what she has learned in a cookbook of home styled, southern recipes.
Burnt Pancakes and Crummy Biscuits is a cookbook of good food and good humor, written by a good cook in loving memory of her mama who wasn’t.Get Your Copy At: BarnesAndNoble.com and Createspace.com
